A COUPLE of men were arrested at a holiday park in Abergele on suspicion of attempted murder.

This followed an incident on May 22, which led to a man presenting himself at The Royal Oldham Hospital with gunshot wounds, and another receiving serious knife wounds on Busk Road, Oldham.

Yesterday afternoon (May 28), Greater Manchester Police, with assistance from specialised colleagues at North Wales Police, executed a warrant at the Abergele holiday park.

As a result, the two man, aged 32 and 22, were arrested.

A third man, aged 28, was also arrested on suspicion of assisting an offender.
